Prophecy of the Golden Age Part 73 - Native American Prophecies with Chief Phil Lane Jr.

Prophecy of the Golden Age Part 73 - Native American Prophecies with Chief Phil Lane Jr.

According to The Honorable Native American Chief Phil Lane Jr., enlightened Masters have always been coming to bless our world, helping to move our human civilization forward to a freer, more inclusive and advanced state. The gentle presence of each enlightened Messenger has had a ripple effect that elevated our world in ways we may never fully perceive. And it is still true in our modern time. One autumn day in 1993, an intuitive kinship led a respected Native American medicine man to invite a living Master and Her disciples to his home. The time together was brief but impressions. In an inspired moment, Thomas One Wolf expressed what enlightened Masters meant to the Native American people, in sharing his thoughts about Supreme Master Ching Hai. “Her wisdom is knowledge shared, remember something: ‘the only word you are really hearing is Joy.’ When you are walking with Her and you see people that will respect and honor Her way and pay homage to Her, then you are gifted by the gift of Her peace. These are what Masters are to the Indian.”

His Holiness Marpa Lotsawa (vegetarian): Remarkable Tibetan Buddhist Master, Part 2 of 4

While following Mahasiddha Sri Naropa, Marpa Lotsawa received permission to study with Naropa’s disciple, the great Mahasiddha Maitripa, who became Marpa’s second main Guru. At the Radiant Flower Monastery on Blazing Fire Mountain, Marpa received two important traditions from Maitripa. The first is the Vajrayana practice of singing spontaneous songs of experience and realization, known as dohas. The teachings of Mahamudra is the second tradition that Marpa received from Maitripa. Afterwards, Marpa travelled home to Lhotrak, where He was greeted by the locals with respect. Meanwhile, He continued to work to support His family as well as His growing followers. After his son Tarma Dode was born, Marpa Lotsawa went to India a second time, and for the next six years, He continued to study with Masters Naropa and Maitripa. As He was preparing to leave, Naropa instructed Him to return to India for a third time to complete His training.

Buddhist Stories: Wish-Fulfilling Jewels, Part 7 of 10 Aug. 13, 2015

Walking for a while, he saw another citadel with walls all like green diamonds. And this, another Ocean King, sat on his seven-jeweled throne. So he asked, "Bodhisattva, is there something necessary that you have to come here?" So he said, "Your Majesty, I come here requesting of you the Wish-Fulfilling Jewel to help my people." So the King of the Ocean said, "Sir, this one can rain down food for all beings within 4,000 square miles. If you want to have it, please stay here two months. Every day, give me a lecture." After a while, he saw another citadel. And then the king, another King of the Ocean, sitting on his seven-jeweled throne. So he said, "This jewel can rain down seven kinds of jewels in the vicinity of 8,000 square miles. If you want it, you stay four months, preach to me, so that I know some of the Buddha's true Dharma." There were some dragons around there, knowing that Great Charity had come to the Ocean King, and had gotten the best Wish-Fulfilling Jewel, so they became greedy. And he thought to himself, "So it can only be the dragons that stole my jewels. I spent so much time and went through so much hardship to get them so that I can rescue other beings, to fulfill my wish of charity to give it to others. Even if I die, I will not go back home empty-handed. I will scoop all the water from the ocean until I see you down there."

Wisdom and Judgement Jan. 12, 2020

On Sunday, January 12, 2020, our Beloved Supreme Master Ching Hai lovingly addressed the assembly of our fellow Quan Yin practitioners at the New Land Ashram in Taiwan, also known as Formosa. Our Gracious Master also explained the difference between wisdom and our judgement, with a few examples for clarity. “We have to practice more in order to have wisdom, but it’s very difficult for you to feel the difference between wisdom and your own judgement. I’ll tell you some examples of wisdom and your own preconceived ideas, judgements.” “You always have to improve. You learn with me, but you don’t copy me in my doing, because sometimes you copy differently. You don’t understand the meaning behind it, and you just copy blindly. That’s no good. You have to know logic and reason, not to talk about wisdom yet.”

Selections from "Thus Spake the Holy Mother (vegetarian)," Part 2 of 2

The Holy Mother is considered an uplifter of souls who maintained communion with God at all times, even while engaging in various daily activities. To her disciples, she was a teacher who removed their doubts, a mother whose loving kindness brought comfort, and a Divine presence that assured them of spiritual liberation. We now would like to share with you the uplifting sayings of Sri Sarada Devi, through an excerpt from “Thus Spake The Holy Mother.” “Spiritual practice means to keep the mind steady at His lotus feet and to be absorbed in His thoughts. When the desire arises in the mind to know anything, then pray to Him alone in a lonely place with tears in your eyes. He will remove all dirt and sorrow from your mind and will make you understand everything. Always discriminate. Try to realize that the outside object which is attracting your mind is impermanent, and turn your attention to God. Always try to do the Lord’s work and at the same time try to practice Japa (repeating holy mantras or God’s name) and meditation.”

After he brought the gold and everything back, he told everybody to buy a good boat and everything had to be very thick. And then after everybody arranged to go home, he said, "I'll stay here. I want to go down to the King of the Ocean and ask for the Wish-Fulfilling Gem. Then I can give to all the world's people. And it's never, never finished." "I do not fear the long distance and the dangerous journey going to the sea to take out the treasures, to help other citizens, so that they will not be hungry and thirsty anymore. This merit I dedicate to all the Buddhas in the ten directions. I want to forward it only to my Buddhahood in the future." And then he went down to sea now. Then he saw the King of the Ocean, sitting there on his jeweled throne, a seven-jeweled throne. And he saw Great Charity come in; he was so surprised. He was thinking, "How can he come here? He must be full of merit." And then the King of the Ocean felt very respectful. "But you stay here for one month first so that I can make some offerings to you. And then you preach to me." And then the King of the Ocean took the Wish-Fulfilling Jewel from his tuft of hair, and give it to him, and then he said, "Great Charity, Sir, your merciful heart is so great, so big. Your willpower is so incredible. In the future, you definitely will be a Buddha. After you become Buddha, please accept me then as a disciple with wisdom."

"Bee" Caring and Sharing

00:16:25

"Bee" Caring and Sharing

In our bee family, we share what we are good at with one another, because it feels great when we give and receive. We may be tiny compared to the rest of the animal kingdom, but we surely have a big job to do: pollination. We pollinate the flowers of crops and fruit trees so they can bear fruit. Without us, there wouldn’t be any fruits and seeds, the plants wouldn’t be able to reproduce, animals wouldn’t have any food, and many people would go hungry. Because of this decline, harvests have been smaller in recent years, meaning less food for both animals and humans. The good news is that there are ways to help bolster the population of bees. For example, you can grow a garden that’s bee-friendly, right in your own backyard. Plant-based foods are the healthiest for the human body. Best of all, fruit and vegetables have seeds, and each seed can grow into a whole new plant if given the chance. You can share or swap extra seeds with friends and neighbors and enjoy the fruit of one another’s labor later on.

Dr. William Grant on Bolstering Health Through Sunlight and Vitamin D, Part 3 of 3

Dr. William Grant on Bolstering Health Through Sunlight and Vitamin D, Part 3 of 3

In this concluding episode, Dr. Grant covers how elevating our vitamin D intake can improve our wellness in several areas and other advantages of sunbathing. Dr. Grant has shared that vitamin D can help prevent respiratory infections by improving immunity. “More recently, a meta-analysis of acute respiratory infections found that if you had your vitamin D level above about 10 nanograms per milliliter or 25 nanomoles per milliliter, you had a greatly reduced risk of developing acute respiratory infections.” Tooth decay is the most common form of oral disease, affecting more than 70% of children globally. Though not well-publicized, vitamin D can play a role in improving oral health. “One of the very first clinical trials on the benefits of vitamin D was reported in 1928. May Mellanby reported that. And what she found is, yes, that boys who had taken the vitamin D developed fewer dental caries than boys who didn’t.” “Sunlight exposure has many health benefits. Vitamin D is one of the more important ones. So going outdoors helps reduce the chance of developing depression.”

Selections from "Thus Spake the Holy Mother (vegetarian)," Part 1 of 2

Sri Sarada Devi, the Holy Mother, was the Divine consort and first disciple of Sri Ramakrishna Paramahansa. She conveyed a motherly simplicity, grace, quiet dignity, purity, selflessness, and all-embracing compassion, all of which provided comfort to her disciples and devotees. The Holy Mother is revered by Hindus as much as the mystic Sri Ramakrishna. She is thus worshipped and admired as one of the most important Saint mothers of all times. “Thus Spake The Holy Mother” is a compilation of the sayings of Sri Sarada Devi. This collection offers illumination and guidance for the soul yearning to re-connect with the Divine. “When will the grace of God descend on me? There is no such rule that grace of God will fall on one simply because one is practicing austerities. How does one get the vision of God? It is only through His grace. But one must practice meditation and Japa. That removes impurities from the mind. One must practice spiritual disciplines such as worship and so forth.”

The Open House Culture of Malaysia

00:18:24

The Open House Culture of Malaysia

Fully embracing their multi-culture identity, Malaysians have a unique custom called, “open house,” which means during important cultural and religious festivals, they would open their houses to welcome not only friends and families, but also strangers. Through feasting and chatting together, cultural barriers are broken and new friendships are formed. Though 60% of the population are Muslims, national holidays such as Christmas, Chinese New Year, Deepavali, and native harvesting festivals are also celebrated, alongside various Islamic holidays such as the holy month of Ramadan, Eid-ul Fitr, and Eid-ul Adha. Now let’s take a look at how Malaysians celebrate some of their other holidays. His Excellency, Tun Dr. Mahathir bin Mohamad, actively promotes harmonious existence among citizens of different races and backgrounds. “Malaysia was built on the foundations of tolerance, goodwill, mutual respect, the readiness of giving and sharing, selflessness, and a desire to make sacrifices for the sake of the country.” “Without such traits, Malaysia would not have grown into a developed country, which is capable of giving its people all the comforts and progress it has today.”

The Winter Sleep of Animals

00:17:48

The Winter Sleep of Animals

Winter is the coldest time of the year, when the days are shorter and the nights are longer. It is a season of rest, and a period to conserve, rather than expend, energy. So, what is hibernation? It is like a long, deep sleep for animals and a time. Animals prepare to enter this state by eating a lot during the summer and autumn seasons to store fat to last them throughout the winter. Did you know that a pregnant American black bear could give birth during hibernation? She does not even need to wake herself to take care of her cubs. Instead, she can nurse her babies for months from the stored fat she has on reserve. Did you know that some animals in hot climates also undergo a form of hibernation? This is called estivation. Supreme Master Ching Hai spoke about the spiritual purpose of hibernation for animals during an August 23, 2009 lecture given in France. “There are some spiritual reasons. You see, because every day, animals, they’re also busy looking for food and taking care of their family, and so during wintertime, they take advantage of the natural cycle and they go into hibernation; they sleep in winter to recover their spiritual strength, apart from other things.”

Then he came up to his father and said, "Respected Father, just now I went out into the suburban areas, into the rural areas, and I saw that our citizens, because for survival, are doing many things that are karmically heavy. After they die definitely they will fall into the Three Evil Paths." "Please, can you give me one of our stores of food so that I can go and give it to them." After a while of charity, many of the stores in his house had gone down. And then Great Charity thought to himself, "So, what can I do now so that I can continue to give to the citizens so that they are happy and contented?" "OK, maybe I'll go deep into the sea to find precious stones. That should be the best." And then 500 people liked to come with him. They were just walking and then the robbers came and took everything. They came to a citadel, a city, called Supara city. In this city, there was a noble person, a rich person. His name was Kapali. He had one daughter, very, very beautiful. Now, the Great Charity man came in front of the city wall, in front of the house, and knocked at the door and wanted to borrow some money. She came in and told her father, "Ba! Outside, there's a person knocking at the door. He's my husband!" And, of course, the noble rich man was so happy. Everything that he lost, he replenished them all.

“Be the change that you wish to see in the world.” These words from Mahatma Gandhi are frequently quoted by Dr. Sailesh Rao, who puts much emphasis on the transformation needed to realize his goal of World Vegan by 2026. “So we do that and then every week in Phoenix, we have an interfaith vegan church service that happens, where we draw from different faiths. We draw from Hinduism, Buddhism, Christianity, you name it. And we are showing how our scriptures’ foundation is compassion for all life.” “I see a beautiful world in front of us, where we are all working together to regenerate the forest, to bring back the animals, to clean up the ocean, to clean up all the water. And then we look back at what has happened and we feel proud to be a species that does belong on Earth. We feel proud to have done our job.”
